This in-depth history of the Jewish faith explores how

Jews have lived under Christianity and Islamic rule,

survived centuries of anti-Semitism, life in the Diaspora,

the Holocaust and the revival of Judaism today. In the

19th century, mass migration to America coincided with

the rise of Zionism. Today, most Jews live in Israel and

the USA, yet France and Britain maintain vibrant Jewish

populations, and Germany, once the birthplace of Nazism,

is Europe's fastest-growing community.With over 250

illustrations, this is a fascinating history of one of the

world's most influential religions, forming a perfect study

aid for anyone with an interest in the story of the Jews.

• A rich visual account of one of the world's great

religions, following Judaism through centuries of

persecution to the establishment of a global civilization

• Special focus on Jewish culture and society in recent times,

including medicine, science, art, literature and music

• “Lawrence Joffe's history overflows with images and ideas

and amply fulfils its opening declaration: ‘The tale of

Jewish survival is full of extraordinary drama – triumphs

followed by. . . near extinction.'” The Jewish Chronicle
